There’s something absolutely liberating about dropping to the depths of the deep blue, blowing bubbles of air, and watching in awe, a whole other world where creatures glide effortlessly. The best part about diving is that it is a true escape. With the sounds of everyday life tens of metres away, it’s one of the […]
Maldives Travel Guide
Contrary to popular believe, the island country of Maldives is not disappearing (or at least the locals we spoke to said it wasn't a primary concern). This is a tropical paradise that gives travellers a glimpse into an incredible underwater world that will make your trip here truly once-in-a-lifetime.
This Maldives travel guide will help you plan your next vacation.
Over these past couple of months, I’ve been writing features about different parts of the result and with this being my very last one, I thought I’d cover one of the best parts about the resort, the food. I’ve been to a lot of all inclusive resorts over the years and I can safely say […]
Honestly I don’t know if it gets any better than the house reef at the Conrad Maldives. Having been to several resorts over the years, the local reef off the beach is always, for lack of better word, “shitty”. There is minimal coral and if there are any, it’s been trampled over so many times […]
Aside from the amazing property we had the opportunity to stay at, one of the experiences that really stood out above the rest was our snorkelling trip with Katie and Jacob from the Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme (MWSRP). Snorkelling with Whale Sharks Whale sharks, contrary to popular belief are not actually whales despite their size. […]
Before you head back home after an epic time at the Conrad Maldives, there’s one thing that the resort can do for you as a send off and this is to hook you up with a local guide to give you a tour of the city island of Malé. The Capital Before I delve into how […]

[…]
Once you arrive at the Conrad Maldives, you’ll be filled with tons of emotions. You’ll almost feel schizo. You’ll be elated with joy, wonder and amazement. One one hand though you’ll want to just drop all your bags and do a whole lot of nothing but at the same time you’ll want to go and […]
Perfect waters of the Maldives As I mentioned in my main review of the Conrad Maldives, one of the big reasons why you come out to the Maldives is to take advantage of the world-class diving that they have here, the abundance of marine life and crystal clear waters. In this post, I hope to […]
The Conrad Maldives is a premium property and as such you’re going to expect premium prices for its exclusivity, remoteness, quality and service. To demonstrate how much the resort expects you to pay at a minimum, upon arrival at the Conrad seaplane lounge, a $5,800 USD pre-authorization was made on one of my credit cards. With […]
When we arrived at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, we noticed a peculiar thing scattered around the resort and by our bungalow. There were these large porcelain vases filled with water and a ladle made with a hollowed out coconut. At first, we were quite puzzled since it didn’t come with any instructions but over […]
